Image Caption:
STS49-88-082: Bay of Campeche This CIR image shows Laguna de
Terminos on the southern shore of the Bay of Campeche
(southwestern Yucatan). The city of Ciudad del Carmen lies on
the tip of the thinner barrier island, center right. Several
rounded lagoons of smaller size dot the view, with straight
drainage canals leading into them. A wide strandplain made of
numerous, ancient, parallel beach ridges occupies the coast in
the center of the picture displaying narrow waterbodies.
